St. Luke's Stories
Last week we mentioned the idea of people sending in mini-autobiographies, which we could share on our church website. There is now a new page called, "St. Luke's Stories" where we can easily add mini-autobiographies, poems, photos or even videos. So if you have anything you want to suggest for the page, please send it in.
Pam Elmes has sent in our first contribution. She writes: "Something the Holy Spirit gave me a few years ago. At the time it took few minutes to write, but it's as fresh for me today as it was then. And these words are for everyone to give a special focus on God." To read the poem check out:
St. Luke's Stories.
Be assured I will do my best to check that people are happy for the requests to be shared before including them. Please pray for...
